At the end of Fuzzy Navel, J. A. Konrath surprised readers with an agonizing cliffhanger: One of Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels's loved ones is dead. But who? Readers were left clamoring to know more.

Cherry Bomb, the sixth Jack Daniels mystery, opens at the funeral. While Jack stands graveside, tears in her eyes, her cell phone rings. It's the killer, escaped maniac Alex Kork, taunting Jack, drawing her ever further into a twisted game of cat and mouse. Because while Alex is more than willing to kill random victims, Jack is her true prey. But which woman wants revenge more?

Cherry Bomb is J. A. Konrath's most gripping novel of suspense yet--filled with twists and turns that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

From the Author:

Q & A with Joe Konrath

Q: Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Joe: Years ago I wanted to be a model for husky pants. But then, when I was barely a teen, they stopped making husky sizes.

Damn those clothing designers for shattering my dreams.

Q: When did you decide to become a writer?

Joe: I mean, I'm not offended by the term "husky." Now they're called "relaxed fit" jeans. It's the same thing, but there's nothing sexy about being a "relaxed fit jeans" model. Husky sounds like you're owning those extra pounds, making them work for you. Relaxed fit sounds like you eat too much and are just plain lazy.

What was your question again? Ideas? I hunt through James Patterson's garbage, and steal what he tossed. When Patterson throws out ten pages, that's like fifty chapters.

Ha ha ha! Get it? Because his chapters are so short! I swear, the last Patterson book I read had more chapters than page numbers.

Actually, I just watch old Outer Limits episodes and appropriate the plots, like Alan Moore did with Watchmen.

Q: Who do you like to read?

Blake Crouch, Ann Voss Peterson, Jeff Strand, Henry Perez, F. Paul Wilson, Tom Schreck. Pretty much anyone I collaborate with. Because here's a dirty little secret: when you co-write a book with someone, you kind of have to read the stuff they wrote.

My absolute favorite author is Dr. Seuss. In fact, I tried my hand at writing a few Dr. Seuss-style children's books. Here are the titles:

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE MY KIDNEY

HORTON HATCHES A TERRORIST PLOT

ON BEYOND DONKEY PUNCH

MARVIN K MOONEY WILL YOU PLEASE DROP DEAD

THE CAT IN THE HAT GETS NEUTERED

GREEN EGGS AND E COLI

THIDWICK THE BIG HEARTED PIMP

MR. BROWN CAN MOO, AND THEY PUT HIM AWAY

THERE'S A WOCKET IN MY POCKET, AND I BLAME VIAGRA

BOOMER THE TUMOR

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to sell any of these. I think it may be some sort of rights-issue thing.

Q: What's a work day in the life of Joe Konrath like?

Joe: I wake up early and make some eggs.

Then the smoke alarm goes off, because the eggs are burning because I fell asleep again.

Then I spend ten minutes explaining to the firemen that show up how I'll be more careful next time.

I go back to bed, and the next thing I know, it's around noon. Time for lunch. I want to make an egg sandwich, but I'm out of eggs. And bread. And pretty much everything except some sort of fruit that's been in the refrigerator forever and might be a lime. Or not. It may not even be fruit. So I put it back and think about cooking some pasta but that seems like a lot of work for just lunch, so I go take a nap.

Around three I get up, ready to start my work day, but first I need to eat something. Do pizza places deliver at three? I make a few calls. Nope, no one delivers before five.

I check the fridge. The lime thing is still there, but it looks like it moved from where I saw it last. How odd. Did it move by itself? I'm really hungry, so I decide to give it a try.

It's not a lime, because limes don't have bones.

When I finish eating, I sit down at my computer and write my daily quota, thirty pages.

Q: What's next for Joe Konrath?

Joe: This Spring, Carson's will be releasing my signature scent, called Nocturnal Emission. Available in parfum, eau du toilet, cologne, and roll on. I like the roll on. It tickles my armpits.  My goal is to make enough money to buy Nebraska. Then I'll rename it Joebraska, and invite all of my friends to visit. We're going to have a big party in the state capital, Joemaha. You can come, if you want.

Q: Do you want to talk at all about your books?

Joe: Nope. Not really.

From the Inside Flap:

Cherry Bomb is Book #6 in the Jack Daniels series.

I often get asked by readers what order the Jack Daniels books should be read in. 

I purposely write each book so it can be read without any prior knowledge of any of the others. If you want to start on the last book and work backwards, or start in the middle, you can still enjoy the series without missing anything.

That said, some readers do want a chronological list of events in Jack's life. So here it is.

Besides the eleven main Jack Daniels novels, Jack and her cohorts have appeared as supporting characters in several other books and stories. Here's the order, from her years as a rookie cop, to the future.

SHOT OF TEQUILA by JA KonrathSERIAL KILLERS UNCUT by JA Konrath and Blake CrouchWHISKEY SOUR by JA KonrathBLOODY MARY by JA KonrathJACK DANIELS STORIES by JA KonrathRUSTY NAIL by JA KonrathDIRTY MARTINI by JA KonrathDEAD ON MY FEET by JA KonrathDYING BREATH by JA KonrathEVERYBODY DIES by JA KonrathLADY 52 by JA Konrath and Jude HardinFUZZY NAVEL by JA KonrathCHERRY BOMB by JA KonrathSHAKEN by JA KonrathSTIRRED by JA Konrath and Blake CrouchRUM RUNNER by JA KonrathLAST CALL by JA KonrathWHITE RUSSIAN by JA Konrath
The Jack Daniels books also crossover with several books by me and my frequent collaborators Blake Crouch and Ann Voss Peterson. These include:
THE LIST by JA KonrathORIGIN by JA KonrathWEBCAM by JA KonrathAFRAID by JA KonrathTRAPPED by JA KonrathENDURANCE by JA KonrathHAUNTED HOUSE by JA KonrathDESERT PLACES by Blake CrouchLOCKED DOORS by Blake CrouchPUSHED TOO FAR by Ann Voss PetersonBURNED TOO HOT by Ann Voss PetersonDEAD TOO SOON by Ann Voss PetersonWATCHED TOO LONG by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonFLEE by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonSPREE by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonTHREE by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonEXPOSED by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonHIT by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonNAUGHTY by JA Konrath and Ann Voss PetersonFIX by JA Konrath, Ann Voss Peterson, and F.

Plus there are a whole lot of short stories I've written with other authors that take place in the Jack Daniels universe, including:
